Photo Friday: A Bit of Fun

Since it’s April Fool’s Day, I thought I’d share some silliness with you – you know, the silly things you do when you discover a few new photo apps. Oh, the wonders of digital photography!            All photos © 2015, 2016 Karen Carlisle. All rights reserved.

The Aftermath of a Long, Hot Summer.

It’s Easter long weekend. It’s not over thirty degrees Celcius. And I’m free (and healthy enough) to potter in my beloved garden. It’s the first time I’ve had a hope of achieving something useful in the garden for months, without collapsing, getting sunburned or jar my knees digging in the hard-baked soil. Today’s mission was a full garden assessment…

Photo Friday is Back!

Time for a blog shake up, dear Reader. I’ve decided I need to flood the world with pretty pictures, so it’s time I start sharing my photographic work once more and reinstate Photo Friday. Photography has long been a passion of mine; I seriously considered photography or cinemetography as a career option. Now I get to play…

Hunting The Trail For My Tale

It’s Mad March here in Adelaide. We have the Adelaide Festival of Arts, Writers’ Week, beginning of Adelaide Racing Carnival (if you are into horse racing), Adelaide Fringe and Clipsal 500 (car racing). And this year I got my chance to be part of it – part of The Fringe. A few months ago, local writers and…
